Welcome to the Frank H. Spearman Digital Collection, a literary project produced by students from Mt. St. Mary’s College MA in Humanities Program. The contents of this website were created as part of the course requirements for a Digital Humanities course on Finding, Using, and Creating Electronic Texts. The goal of the Spearman Digital Collection is to serve as a resource for the study and enjoyment of the creative and non-fiction works of Frank H. Spearman, a prolific western writer and Catholic essayist. In this first phase, we invite you to join us in conversation on our crowd-sourced annotated edition of Whispering Smith (Spearman’s most successful novel), peruse the gallery of Spearman family memorabilia digitized from the Mount’s Special Collections, and immerse yourself in the fabled history of the American West.
